The Bogey Hole is a popular swimming spot in Newcastle, located beneath a headland and providing a spectacular vantage point to view the ocean. It was carved out in 1819 for the personal use of Major James Morisset who was the commandant of the penal colony.
It’s a steep path down from the top of the hill.
The existing steps and handrails are a bit dilapidated, and Newcastle Council has approved a restoration programme.
It’s a great place to catch the sun in the morning.
